This seems to have introduced a regression: input() now returns 0
instead of EOF to indicate that the end of input was reached.  This has
been reported in a few places:

It breaks the scanner used by libdtrace, and as a result dtrace is
unable to resolve some probe argument types:

I have a small patch to libdtrace which works around this.  The upstream
commit that introduced the change is fairly old at this point, and
upstream seems somewhat unresponsive, so I'm not sure it'll get
reverted.  Some other scanners in the tree look like they'd be affected,
like crypto/heimdal/lib/asn1/lex.l or
sys/contrib/dev/acpica/compiler/aslsupport.l, so I'm wondering if we
should revert this particular change for 13.0.  Certainly we should fix
the DTrace bug one way or another for 13.0.
